Who Needs Doe?

Second post for me today.  If you're looking for my Play Date Cafe post, please scroll down one.  Thanks.

I've so been wanting to ink up my Oh Deer mini stamp set by Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company and finally got a chance to do so while feeling pretty lousy from this flu bug that's going around.  Although it took two days to finish it, I'm VERY happy with the finished product and will be entering it into a few blog challenges as well including the current For Your Inspiration challenge which have started back up for 2013.  Here's the inspiration photo I went by.

After stamping my main image from the Oh Deer mini and Scenic Selections in memento tuxedo black onto MFP white card stock, I pulled out my prismacolor markers and got to work coloring the images before stippling some Tim Holtz tumbled glass for the sky.  Then I stippled a combination of Stamping Up! garden green and Tim Holtz forest moss inks for the grass before stamping some grass from Scenic Selections in the same ink combinations to define the blades a bit more.  After printing off some My Time Made Easy Bold Boys designer paper and sponging rust ink around the card layer, I stamped a background scrap border using a deer image from Mountain Selections in not quite navy ink before popping up my layered main image over the stamped border.  The only embellishments I added were some vintage brads and buttons with thread tied through them.  The inside saying says "Happy Birthday Deer".
